Review: The Two Lila Bennetts

The Two Lila Bennetts By Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke 307 pages, published July 23, 2019 Lake Union Publishing Note: I received this book from the publisher via  NetGalley   to facilitate my review. I received no other compensation, and all opinions are my own . From Goodreads: Lila Bennett’s bad choices have finally caught up with her. And one of those decisions has split her life in two. Literally. In one life, she’s taken hostage by someone who appears to be a stranger but knows too much. As she’s trapped in a concrete cell, her kidnapper forces her to face what she’s done or be killed. In an alternate life, she eludes her captor but is hunted by someone who is dismantling her happiness, exposing one secret at a time. Lila’s decorated career as a criminal defense attorney, her marriage, and her life are on the line. She must make a list of those she’s wronged—both in and out of the courtroom—to determine who is out to get her before it’s too late. But even if she ca

Recently Finished   When We Believed in Mermaids was a fantastic, five star read. My review is posted here !

TLC Book Tours: When We Believed in Mermaids (Review)

Image
About  When We Believed in Mermaids Paperback: 352 pages Publisher: Lake Union Publishing (July 16, 2019) From the author of  The Art of Inheriting Secrets  comes an emotional new tale of two sisters, an ocean of lies, and a search for the truth. Her sister has been dead for fifteen years when she sees her on the TV news… Josie Bianci was killed years ago on a train during a terrorist attack. Gone forever. It’s what her sister, Kit, an ER doctor in Santa Cruz, has always believed. Yet all it takes is a few heart-wrenching seconds to upend Kit’s world. Live coverage of a club fire in Auckland has captured the image of a woman stumbling through the smoke and debris. Her resemblance to Josie is unbelievable. And unmistakable. With it comes a flood of emotions—grief, loss, and anger—that Kit finally has a chance to put to rest: by finding the sister who’s been living a lie. After arriving in New Zealand, Kit begins her journey with the memories of the past: of days s

  Hosted by  Taking On A World of Words . The Three W's are: What did you just finish reading? What are you currently reading? What do you think you'll read next? Recently Finished   Unfortunately, this one was disappointing.  I was excited to read a book about yoga but I felt like it was way too cheesy and over the top. I really enjoyed Summer on Mirror Lake--finished it last night. Though predictable, I've loved the Honeymoon Harbor series. The characters are great and I love the PNW setting. Currently Reading I'm listening to Queen Bee on audio. At first I wasn't into it but about 40% through I started loving it. I should finish it today. I plan on starting Whisper Network today at lunch!   Up Next  Just picked this one up from the library! I've heard nothing but good things! It looks like a fun read!  What are you reading this week? Happy Reading!

Lifestyle journalist Ella Skye remembers every celebrity she interviewed, every politician she charmed between the sheets, and every socialite who eyed her with envy.

Hoping to find the memories of a lost pregnancy that’s left her husband devastated and their home empty, Ella begins delving into her past when she’s assigned an exclusive story about Nathan Donovan, a retired celebrity adventurer who seems to know more about her than she does him.

Appologies for the lack of blog posts lately--last week at work was insane, and I have this week off (yay!) so I'm really trying to spend some time relaxing and reading! Recently Finished I Heart Hawaii was just OK for me. However, I LOVED Incursion. Blake Crouch is amazing! Read my review here . Just finished The Lemon Sisters last night--the third book in the Wildstone series. I loved it! Currently Reading I'm struggling through The Dragonfly Sea. The writing is gorgeous, and I like the characters, but it moves along slowly and is 500 pages.  I'm only 100 pages in and I'm at that point where I'm deciding if I keep going or DNF. Sigh. Started my eARC of Breathe In, Cash Out last night--I've been in need of some lighter reading lately and The Lemon Si
